CHIPMAKER Intel has accused a former engineer of attempting to steal ’secrets’ related to its 3D XPoint technology to pass on to rival Micron.

In a lawsuit filed in Sacremento on Tuesday, Intel alleges that Doyle Rivers, a former engineer who worked at the firm’s Folsom campus, ”secretly” accepted a job with Micron and tried to steal confidential info on his way out, Gov Tech reports.

The ”top secret” info related to the company’s 3D XPoint memory technology and the processes for developing, which ”are not written in any textbook or taught in any school,” according to Intel.
